The club has been employing its approved protocols since last June which may have seemed excessive to some members. However today the effort paid off as one of the members phoned through to inform us that they were having to self isolate as they had been in contact with someone at work who had been diagnosed with Covid. The recordings, record keeping and creation of "Bubbles" for rollups paid off as we were able to identify the rink and members of the bubble and contact them within minutes to inform them of the situation. Three went out and had a lateral flow test to confirm that they were negative. 

 Despite the attitude of some members who still don't understand the point of the protocols, the Board will always take decisions in the best interests of its members.

A huge thank you to the vast majority who for over a year have given the club their undivided support.


The draw for the knockouts has been posted on the outside notice board. Please arrange you matches asap to enable Neil to keep to his schedule.

Thanks to Christine Smith for drawing the numbers at the Thursday morning  Roll-Up.

Thanks to Fiona for getting the matches organised and John Gee for producing the cards. We will have to wait and see what matches we are able to play.

The Governments road map out of the pandemic means that we will be unable to meet in the Pavilion for the AGM on 22nd March. A zoom meeting will be organised to enable us the approve the financial statement and install Hazel as President. The members owe Lynne Morrow and Trevor a vote of thanks for getting all the technical logistics sorted out.

The AGM information was circulated to all the members by email yesterday. If you haven't received it please let me know asap.

I'm  delighted that so many of us have or are about to receive our first vaccinations.  I'm hopeful that once we are all vaccinated we will be able to resume bowling again in the summer, albeit using many of  the protocols we established last year. I cannot imagine that any member will not take up, the offer of vaccination but if there are the Board will have to look at the protocols again to ensure the safety of all our members.

Spring is round the corner. Keep positive and safe

AGM 2021

The accounts have been prepared by Trevor Witts, the company's  accountant and will be presented to the board at a Zoom meeting today, Tuesday 9th, for approval. Hopefully they will, along with the reports and forms be circulated by the secretary as soon as possible.

The Board voted to leave the  date of the AGM as 22nd  March 2021.

Materials will be sent out electronically to all members with email addresses. The remaining few will receive everything through the post.

Members renewing memberships will be pleased to know that, despite the problems caused by the pandemic, fees will remain at £75.00 for bowling membership and £10.00 for social and juniors.

As a gesture to the members who paid their subs in full last year, to help cover the £11.000 annual running costs, even though many didn't play at all during the season, it was decided by the Board to leave their subs at £75 but to charge new joining and rejoining members a £25.00 joining fee.

Subs can be paid either by cheque, made payable to Mansfield Bowling Club Ltd or by on line BACS transfer. (Contact  the Treasurer or Eleanor for BACS details.) Send to John Hallows or Eleanor.

I'm not putting the bank details on line for obvious security reasons.

I'm delighted that despite a few scares we all seem to be surviving these troubled times.

Hopefully we will all be able to meet up and enjoy good company and enthusiastic bowling again by the summer.

Keep safe 

Jane Kockum informed Eleanor that Caston received his vaccine notification by text and was worried that some of our over 80 year old mem​bers may not receive Texts. Kings Mill are giving bookings  by phone. 0115 8834640

Keep safe and enjoy a different but safe Christmas.

The Council need a separate Risk Assessment as the  club's Protocol doesn't match their format.  I will keep you updated.
